UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 2011 Vintage, Bottle #0609
Tasted on 3/31/14 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales, this was not a cheap one. Pours a bright, almost cranberry juice colored amber, letting just a tinge of light through, with a thin tan head that slowly recedes to very thin lace before completely disappearing. The nose is a very matured sour red wine vinegar with plenty of vanilla and cinnamon oak, vinous fruity sour cherry, there is some caramel malt to this, super complex with a touch of dried fruit oxidation (this really does remind me of an Amarone). The flavor is a bit sweeter, focused on the ripe cherry, caramel malt, dried fruit, vanilla and cinnamon oak, with the red wine vinegar, and some lemon citrus sour notes providing the mid-palate and then the sweeter dried Amarone notes returning on the back of the palate. The body is nearly full with lightly faint carbonation, a lot of oaky tannin, and a long complex finish that hits all of the nutty oxidation, sour, and sweet notes from the nose and the palate.

I must admit I did not review this when I first tried it about 18 months ago and I enjoyed this bottle more from my memory of it back then. Pours with very little to no head which dissipates quickly anyway. A murky red cherry colour with brown hues. On the nose you can tell it’s a sour but a nice mellow sweet wood barrel scent is also present, only a slight whiff of cherry. Quite soft on the palate and a surprising bit of carbonation adding to the mouth feel despite it’s seemingly lack in the glass. Morello cherries are highlighted together with sour apricot and other mature fruits and wood. Low acid for this style as the fruit malt seems to balance it out a bit. Quick hit of sourness but not the cheek pulling effect of some. As it warms up the sour becomes more gentle and the flavours tend to cooperate. Very enjoyable and I am of the opinion if I get my hands on more of these I will cellar them for a while. I suggest this be enjoyed at at leat 12 degrees or even room temperature, mine did not last that long.

Smells of red fruits, vinegar, overly riped fruit and wine. Cloudy and red beer with little head. Taste is very sour. Also lots of cherries and tones of wine. Surprisingly neutral aftertaste. A little thin body.

adamnowek (1737) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2016
Incredibly cloudy raspberry colour, like a melted sherbet. Aroma is balsamico, raspberries, and some white wine. Taste is hugely sour with some sour cherries with a hint of almond and a lasting vinegary finish. Tart as fuuuuuuck.

2011 Bottle, from Systembolaget. Hazy reddish brown with a quickly diminishing white head. Funky aroma and taste with cherries, acetone, sour raspberries, oak, almond and balsamico. Soft, tart finish.

rafael52 (881) - Łódź, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Kolor: brunatny, zmętniony, woda z kałuży.
Piana: niska, szybko znika.
Zapach: sporo wiśni, czerwonych owoców, estrów, trochę rozpuszczalnika, lekkie aromaty korzenne.
Smak: wytrawne, cierpkie, taniniczne, ściągające, również sporo czerwonych owoców, wiśni, lekka nuta korzenna, dość intensywna kwaśność. Wysycenie: wysokie, wylatuje z butelki.
Ogólnie: bardzo dobre piwo, ale prze gazowanie sprawia, że wygląda jak błoto i sprawia dużo trudności z otwarciem butelki.

Wypiłem małą próbkę tegoż piwa. Ale wystarczającą, żeby być bardzo pozytywnie zaskoczonym. Kolor ciemnoczerwony, wpadający w brąz. Aromat kwaśny, owocowy. W smaku bardzo zróżnicowane. Są kwaśne owoce - najbardziej wyczułem wiśnie. Nuty winne i beczkowe. Bardzo fajne! Z pewnością do powtórzenia!

SvanteL (257) - SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
Grumlig, rödbrun med litet skum. Syrlig doft med klara körsbärsinslag, lite kanel och ättika. Smaken är rejält syrlig med lite ättika, lite kryddig, mycket körsbär, lite kanel, viss fatkaraktär. En häftig suröl med många intressanta smaker. 2014-04-09
